Users can retrieve parameters from a CAD model, optimise those parameters and update the CAD model with the revised parameter values directly from the Maple environment. Using the Maple programming language, built-in API commands and interactive technical document environment, users can also create easy-to-use specialised tools for part reconfiguration and optimisation, to share with other engineers.
“By enabling the exchange of information between CAD systems and Maple, we bring our core technology to a broader range of engineers,” said Laurent Bernardin, Executive Vice President, Maplesoft. “With the world's most robust maths engine, live design documentation, system level modelling and simulation, CAD connectivity and code generation, Maplesoft products like Maple and MapleSim support all stages of the design lifecycle.”
Maple easily integrates into development projects using a wide range of connectivity features. In addition to CAD connectivity, features like external calling, the OpenMaple API, web connectivity, extensive import and export tools and connectivity with other software make it easy to incorporate Maple seamlessly into existing engineering toolchains.
